I am an extension site student for Southeastern University (main campus located in Lakeland, FL) and it has been great! I have been able to learn what it means to be involved in ministry at a high-capacity church. In addition, I have consistently been taught on leadership as well as spiritual principles. The professors as well as the site staff are focused on the students' spiritual growth and their fulfilling their specific life callings. If not for this school program, I may not have had as much experience in ministry as I have had up to this point.
Review Your College
Southeastern is a wonderful school! It has a strong, Christian atmosphere, with many chapels to choose from each week. The school is focused on making sure that the students have opportunities for Bible studies and prayer. It also has a great academic program. The professors are caring, and the class sizes are small, so you always can get to know your professor. The campus is beautiful and is located in between Orlando and Tampa, so there are a lot of great internships available in those cities. Also, there are a lot of activities for students, so there is no chance of getting bored!
Southeastern has been an incredible way for me to grow in my faith and in my academics. The campus is beautiful and the professors are intelligent and invested in their students. I have made so many friends here and the surrounding area is full of unique places that you could only find here in Lakeland! The school is not far from beautiful beaches and Disney World. Tampa is one way, and Orlando is the other, so I enjoy being able to be in the middle of it all. The RA's and RD's will make you feel like family and invite you to many things. You will not have a problem finding things to get involve in either. Overall, this university is amazing and I love it here!
